Week Two - Operation: Lose That Ass

I really want to say that having you guys all here has really helped me stay on track with my diet. (cheeseburger) Charles is a great cheering section (Blizzard) and Lauren thinks I'll look funny if I'm able to get rid of my floppy mommy belly. (chocolate cake)

Being able to go to your blogs and talk a little trash and giggle (peanut butter cookies) has really helped keep this in the "good fun" category instead of the "Bite My Ass" category. (potato salad)

Thanks for letting me dish out snark (cheese cake) and dishing it back, all in the name of fun. (smoothie)

That being said, (M&M's) here are this weeks numbers: (chili cheese fries)

Weight last week - unknown

Weight this week - 183

How my pants are fittin' - snug in a 14 and loose in a 16 - but slightly better than before ... or is that my imaginary-nation?

I'm working out a bit with Denise Austin doing most aerobics. The Yoga just didn't do it for me - I'm not that bendy. LOL

To all the lovely participants of Operation: Lose That Ass

Hey you !!!!
you're post is so funny, love the ( subliminal) addition of words. hahaha why do I suddenly crave cheesecake????


I dunno which I would rather have on right now a loose fitting 16 or a tight 14..cause it's quite an incentive when your pants get loose cause you really see them falling off. when you jump right into a tight pair you feel great to get into them but then they are a bit snug I would probably keep going back and forth in them until my 14 was really comfy.....but what do I know I am still in my 16 but its kinda getting loose too.

gotta go I am on a mission to find cheesecake for some strange reason..

Hilarious post!

When I diet I hallucinate and think I'm seeing food or reading words as certain kinds of food. Once I accidentally called my friend Kristin "Chicken".

Good luck!

Where are the Lose that ass commentators????
You're not going to take that lying down are you???
Can not 'weight' to read the comments on this taunting blog...
I'll just sit with my bag of chips, and maybe some sour creamand onion dip, and watch the magic of lose my ass unfold!

Aw buttertoffee! You only THINK (mashed potatoes) you're going to win (truffles)!

My amazing (cheeseburger) numbers are going to (lasagne) blow you away. Of course, I'm taking these numbers with a grain of salt (soft pretzels), but I'm mighty encouraged (peanutbutter pie).

Thanks to you (and all you lovely candybars) for all your support!

Quinn - that's right girly - go eat cheese cake LOL

Victoria - HEY CHICKIE! Long time no hear! Thank you for cheering for me - don't cheer for anyone else - they're all big meanies. LOL

Nikki - You know I'm gonna kick your butt (cookie dough), just go ahead and get accustomed to the idea (mashed potatoes).

Sophia - Thanks - and I haven't gotten quite so hungry as to call a friend of mine a food yet. LOL

HK - don't burst into flames or anything - you'll be disqualified LOL (you're gonna lose, you're gonna lose)

Pendullum - did you just say chips?

Sayre - Good for you! (Dove Chocolate)

Just some food suggestions that could help you lose the weight without giving up too much of the taste:

1. If you MUST have white bread, try the Stroheman's Whole Grain White Bread - I couldn't taste a difference.

2. Frozen yogurt can be delicious, but you need to buy the higher end ones (Haagen Daas, etc.).

3. Bring baby carrots or celery to work - they are a nice snack to get you through the day.

4. Bring gum and drink lots of water wherever you go.

Sam - have one for me would you?

Kat - did you say 2 freezers full of brownies? What is this? An Evil joke? Did Nikki put you up to this? LOL

Don't give up Kat, keep going with your workout plan, and stay away from those brownies.

Carm - I'm focused man, focused. Thanks.

Shrig - YOU'RE MY HERO! LOL I've been eating a hell ofva lot of sald I can tell you.

I laughed harder each time you mentioned a specific food (pepperoni pizza).

Oh crap (cheesesteak)! I see that Sayre has beat me to it (Godiva chocolate ice cream). Damn!

If you're using it as some kind of reverse psychology/dieting maneuver, you might be better off psyching yourself out with animal products (Tender Vittles). Seriously though, if you want to curb your appetite, just by a dry dog or cat food and carry it around with you. When you get hungry take a whiff and I guarantee you'll lose your appetite at the first scent!

Oh, foolish one. I hope you've got some kind of mad skills as a poet, because I will want an Ode to my Ass when I win this thing. I have the subliminal visualizations down, and they go something like this... (muffin top) Your feeble attempts at (baby belly) temptation cannot sway the will power (Flying-squirrel/ teacher arms) of a true weight loss warrior (bathing suit). I OWN this competiton and will beat you AND the tiny accountant at work (okay, I have to stop the visualizations for a bit, I think I just threw up in my mouth a little on that last one).

May I add, I cannot rhyme to save my life. Casual Slack's Tuesday Work Sucks Haiku is the closest thing to poetry appreciation I ever get, so YOU should be hoping I win this as well.

A few years back I was in Duluth to cheer on a friend who was running in Grandma's Marathon. The night before the race the local news aired a report about a 400lb man who had tired of being overweight so he started running. One telephone pole to the next. Two years and 170lbs later he was preparing to run the marathon the next day. Just my luck I happened to be at the line to watch him finish. If he can do that...

Keep up the good work.

Los - Thanks for the tips!

Blair - I laughed my ass of at the Tender Vittles and so did Charles. I'M STILL LAUGHING! That is some of the funniest shit I have ever heard. Charles joked all night long he was going to put a hand full of cat food in a zip lock bag and if I got a craving - I should just sniff it - cause that shit STINKS! LMAO

Thanks - we'll ba laughing about that for years.

Elle - Just trying to be of service LOL

Carm - am not (lemon merangue pie)

Kim - thanks! HUGGGSSS

Factor - sweetie, I don't know what kind of hallucinogen (sp) that you're on, but could you share with the rest of us? I would like to pretend I'm beating the shit out of that skank Paris Hilton - that stuff you're taking seems to be just the stuff I need.

Sven - I'm all over this competition. The rest of these woossies are going to be crying in their milk.

I cannot have any of that (brownies) good food and it is (Mountain Dew) pissing me off. And I am not (strawberry shortcake) even trying to lose my ass. (pepperoni pizza)

Damn you, woman.

At Tuesday, August 22, 2006 11:19:00 AM, Blogger Nikki said...

Christina - I live on Dt Mt Dew. Get some!

Use califlower - blended and mashed with spices instead of mashed potatoes with butter.

They have that icecream that is low in sugar if you have to have some - it's not cheap though.

Go to the health food store. Go on line and get some flax seed and get some almond flour.

There is a fabulous receipe for almond cookies that I can give you.

There is also a web site that you need to go see - it's where I lived for such a long time to get new receipes. I'll have to dig it up.

Do they have you counting carbs?

Just be glad you can control this with diet and exercize. Charles was having to give himself 5 and more shots a day there for a long time until they finally put him on an insulin pump. His pancreas is totally dead.

On the amazing side of this - his grandfather was a diabetic for 20 years when his pancreas starting working again for no reason.

God is great hon, good things can happen even in this.

I'm thinking of you.

No depression is allowed, I'll kick your ass.

Love ya

Congrats! I was doing well, but having trouble this week. I am a little sick or something and it is harder for me to drag up and at 'em at 5:00 am. Too tired to eat as well as I should, also. However, I did lose 6 lbs in two weeks and hoping to turn it back up today!

Michele - Just give me the word and I'll add you on. See my posts about Operation: Lose That Ass for the rules. Keep in mind, you're 2 weeks behind already so keep your goal healthy and reachable. Also, if you don't reach your goal, you lose, and you have to write a post telling the winner how wonderful she is - a glorious post to her fabulousness. LOL

Dirty - Dude, did you just say something about me pluggin my ass? LOL SICK

Super - Oh good grief no - keep the flu. That's one gift that keeps on giving that I can live without! But thanks for thinking of me. LOL

Blair - LMAO!

my best weight loss advice- have your kid break your nose, then have surgery to fix it. then decide that if you're going to have surgery anyways, they might as well do full sinus surgery on you too. easiest (and most painful) 10 lbs i have ever lost in 4 days.
